I was a laser therapy technician in a local hospital. When I heard about EHR and the lack of personnel in healthcare that can understand IT, I decided to take CompTIA Healthcare IT exam and apply for the job of IT professional in the same hospital. After a few months, I passed the exam easily. As soon as I applied for the position of IT manager in my hospital, I got a date of interview. When the interviewer asked about a certification, I told her about CompTIA Healthcare IT. After a few days, I got a call that I am accepted for the job and my salary starts from $66000. I was on cloud nine. This is the best thing that happened to me. I am very happy that I took CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician certification.
